    I think I saw where they may have been practicing. I expect Tunsil, Fuller, Roby and Johnson to be all back for Baltimore.

    Edit: Forgot about Gipson.. he should also return is my guess.

    Reclamation project, probably won't amount to anything, but better than not trying.

    Like Morey churning the roster through the entire 2009 first round of the draft.

    If you don't bring in the talented guys and give them a try, they will definitely never do anything for you. Probably just Terrence Williams, but maybe not.

    The Texans are playing the Bucs later on in the season. Can't start prepping too early, Brian.

    Happy to be wrong about this one. Conley, Roby, L. Johnson and Hargreaves is a nasty db room

    Hargreaves was a tenacious cover corner coming out of Florida, I remembered that I really liked his point of attack with the ball in the air.

    Maybe playing under the same sh**y defense and recycling different crappy coaches had something to do with his terrible play and/or hustle. I know it's not something someone outright admits to doing but perhaps he just gave up. It happens. Players switch teams. Sometimes they choose to work harder for something better and improve. Sometimes they just don't.

    Here's to hoping he's one of the ones that does.

    Yep, with having traded away so many draft picks we have to go bargain shopping.

    He has the talent. Bucs probably got frustrated that he was always hurt. 2nd year, hamstring ...missed 7 games. Last year a shoulder injury, he missed 15 games.

    The Bucs other young CBs made strides this year, both Carlton and Sean. Carlton allowing 83 passer rating when thrown his way. And Sean a 95 passer rating.

    Didn’t think we’d put in a claim. Again discussing with a bucs fan put me off on him, but I was wrong on Conley who’s been better than I thought. We will see how good he is with a change of scenery. Also more and better comp in the secondary is never a bad thing

    Rather it works or not, love to see this type of move. Conley is paying off immediately. Hopefully the staff can get the most out of him. Also, hope he understands how many teams let him pass thru waivers and this may be his last opportunity

    Here's how people thought of him back in 2016:

    http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/vernon-hargreaves?id=2555299

    He's due 9 million next year on the contract they inherited from the Bucs (they liked him enough to pick up his 5th year option last summer) so I assume that unless he blows them away they'll cut him at the end of the year.

    I like the pick up. Texans are atleast trying to get better. Could help in the slot.

    Side note: Fred Faour said Lonnie Johnson Jr off injury list and out of concussion protocol.

    Also found this:

    I think you're right. I think he just got tired of losing. Listening to his post game comments from just a couple weeks ago and you can hear it in his voice and see it in his eyes, he's over it
